Default Tutorial Updates

Hey guys...

This is just a general thread to detail all of the tutorial updates and when they happen. I'm going through all of the archived tutorials that I could get my hands on from the old LWG archives, and working my way through them and setting them up for the new format but it is slow going due to some issues with uploading the images. The coders are working on those issues as I write this and as soon as their updates are done, I can move on to doing my updates. In the meantime, please be patient, I am working on the content...

If you have any tutorials that you would like hosted on the site in the Tutorials section of the resources, please do let me know and I'll work to get them in there as soon as I can.

Matt

Links to the ear video are broken Matt. The FLV plays just fine.

We still need a procedure implemented for uploading/converting video.Kyle started
playing with it and showed good progress, but was sidetracked by more pressing
site issues at the time. As far as I know, it's never been readdressed...

Ooops, sorry Charles... I'm just linking to the tutorial pages but it might be nice for the videos to work as well. I'll leave this up to Bob to sort though since he has main file access

Ear videos are still down, and I'm a little unclear where we are at on an upload location/procedure when creating new Articles - I know 'Cisco and Steve were working on this video business a few months back, any updates?

Not quite sure where they are at on it myself. It was in Steve's court last and I have been blissfully busy on other items and content to let him sort it out. Looks like I need to see what he's up to.

Two more tutorials have gone up this week.

After a long time I finally got this one up. When this was given to me I was still deciding on what format to use for tutorials in the resource section. Since I finally determined the best ways of handling content provided it was an easy matter of getting this up. I had though I would have to convert everything to HTML in addition to PDF and such is not the case. So Lewis has another excellent tutorial for you:

Modelling a Sony T610


The second one is a UV Mapping tutorial for cars by Tony Coleman.

I was able to locate an archive with images for several of the old tutorials. I have passed that along to Matt who will work to get them prepared for re-release.

This one has taken far too long due to technical and personal issues... but it's now finally up... Part 1 of Elowan's beginner tutorial for Lightwave is back online. Parts 2 and 3 should follow within the next couple of days. My apologies about the wait guys.

A post today reminded me of this tutorial from Reaperman from long ago. Since I had the images for the tut I went looking and found the original text so here it is:

While there are others out there and even a couple on this site, I decided to try my hand at tutorial creation with another M-class planet tutorial using some updated techniques and more resources:

Default Dino IK Setup by Japa

This LW 8 tutorial has been offline since the switch over. I contacted japa a month ago or more for the files and just got time to rebuild it today. It is now back online with support files and a PDF version as well.
